I have been missing in action for a little while with work and family commitments but have had a few interesting emails come through the door in the past 6 months. Another reason for the absence was due to waiting on a response regarding an application I submitted in February for an Australian Army History Unit grant which provides funding for Military Research projects. After waiting 5 months to hear, I was unsuccessful. The great thing about receiving the letter is the detailed feedback you receive on why you were not successful encouraging me to re-apply again in Feb 15. This means that the book will not be published for a little while however this was going to be the case anyway as I am still seeking further information to put in the book. I am still looking for Diaries, photographs, stories, medals or any other bits of information on the members of the No 1 Australian Stationary Unit.
